All right good morning everyone will the saints unearthed another undrafted free agent Jim last year when they signed running back Tyree Robinson. In limited action he averaged four point one yards per carry in his rookie season and is looking to build off that and -- more snaps this year. I had to say moss says you can't you know. I'm I'm not continue that a lot of score any bad blood -- America and you can't crucial -- as you know if you were gonna charge you are supposed to do. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin cap for next receiving new six year contract extension. That keeps him with a franchise from 20/20. Videos reportedly worth a 126. Million dollars with a record setting 61 million guarantees. Capps says there's no added pressure with a huge deal. I'll feel like it's a precious thing I think.

The NBA finals get under way tonight in the Alamo city the two time defending NBA champion Miami Heat are you being home court advantage for the spurs in a rematch of last year's NBA championship. San Antonio point guard Tony Parker admits. He has some concern I was injured ankle will hold up during the series stand over it. A little bit because you never realized going I was gonna feel. But I am trying to be very positive. Try to do everything I can't believe healthy give congress do all the treatment and I just trust my body. While the NBA might be done with -- Donald Sterling an attorney for the embattled longtime owner of the clippers says that sterling has agreed to sign off. I'm selling the team of former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. For what would be a record two billion dollars. California -- the three to five early favorite to win the Belmont Stakes and become the horse racing's twelfth Triple Crown champion if he can win I'd be the first time in 36 years that we would have a Triple Crown champion Kentucky Derby. And preakness -- won't break from the number two post under Victor Espinoza on Saturday at Belmont park. -- -- for a sports talk -- from saints head coach Sean Payton quarterback Drew Brees and more following organized team activities. Are there any weaknesses on this year's squad what are your biggest questions for the black and gold rosters this season. -- Steve -- which your early morning look at sports. And I -- a whole lot about California chromeless it's a live report from Michelle Miller former New Orleans Mayor Marc -- wife for CBS television. And she went out to Belmont is trying to hit the horse which at one another to do with -- animals bitter and use -- -- before they are apparently you look at notre horse racing if it. Anyway at the minister. But I didn't realize -- is a couple of paupers by horse racing standards just a couple of normal guys used to be involved in the sport. Who went and bought this -- Adam Brett for ten and grant that that's like. For five -- the UN may mean nothing to make to have this course Brad. And that they want networks and factory I mean these are normal guys who own this horse and have now gathered through. Two thirds of the Triple Crown. And the basic story though other than the fact it was pretty cool that this is not the traditional. You know multi millionaires who put these horses -- are these it's. -- that the sport needs. A hero right now because horse racing has lost. Massive percentages of its audience people are betting on horse racing nearly as much watching horse racing -- going to the tracks apparently it is. Animal weaning sport than they're hoping that if California chrome can win. That. Maybe of the kind of a new renewed interest in the sport the a lot of folks feel that like we don't have an American heavyweight boxing title champion right now. We really need a Triple Crown winner to help boost his sport and it's just funny that those are two sports that are really dropped off the kind of fallen out of mainstream and people don't really think about. You get to go to see the saints players today it yes OTA is. Used to be offseason training activities for the NFL so there is no offseason so now it is organized organized team activities. If you feel up to and ask them if they think having sex the night before game helps or hurts performance.

Is that a good idea bad idea for an athlete -- sex before -- major competition or any count them well I do know the great Mohammed Ali did abstain before every you know before matches so I would. Venture to say he is. One and it right I guess it would really probably depend on the individual person but I would imagine imagine. Being pent up and having that extra aggression would help you in the long run for sports instead of being drained from the activity of you know having sex some soccer players say they swear a little fun on the -- helps to reduce stress but not before him and help them perform that could see that as well is it being a relaxer -- I don't know if you wanna be to lose for game. Who used to be back you know I mean Israel does that really make a difference. I mean it's it would that -- twelve hours before companies are sixteen hours of work up does that really make any difference. You think maybe I yeah I think -- I actually and I could make it different. It's it's better to be pent up. Then loose and relaxed for poor usually have that extra age that that eye of the tiger. Thank you see if and abstain until you exports to -- and 25 minutes here on WW. AM mountain and worded text messages and your forecast after this your forecast.

Getting a record 61 million dollars guaranteed in his six year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. -- -- -- with Nick Saban getting.
